INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 27, 2016) -- A trip to the ATM turned terrifying for one Indianapolis woman this week. The victim and her 4-year-old daughter were held up at gunpoint as they made a withdrawal at an east side Chase bank located at 10th and Bosart.

“Two men approached me on my side and one came up on my daughter’s side. They held us at gunpoint,” said the victim, Emily Orr.

Orr says she pleaded with the suspects to let her and her daughter live. The suspects quickly grew impatient waiting for the cash.

“The man kept hitting me in chest with the gun asking for the money,” said Orr.

In addition to the cash, the suspects demanded her cell phone.

“I just pleaded with them to take whatever you want, but that phone was the main concern for me because of my daughter.”

Orr says her phone contained her only pictures of her second daughter who died just minutes after birth. The suspects stole the phone and smashed it, but then dropped it as they fled, so the pictures could be recovered.

“Every picture I have of her is on that phone. So that means the world to me,” said Orr.

The ATM camera captured pictures of the suspects, but police say they’re working leads in the case and declined to release those images.

Orr said she’s frustrated with how investigators responded to the crime.

“Because they didn’t take my life, it wasn’t as important to them as it was to me,” said Orr. “They see it so much and so often, that it’s not as big of a deal because we are alive and we are OK.”

So far no arrests have been made, but the victim hopes someone sees the story and helps get the crooks off the streets.

“I want something to be done. I want them prosecuted so the next person that pulls up to that ATM, they don’t take their life,” said Orr.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact either IMPD or Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS.
